Bridge Renamed After Fallen Soldier

Punxsutawney, Jefferson County-- Thursday state lawmakers passed legislation that re-names a Jefferson County bridge after a local war hero.
The Big Run Bridge will be re-named in honor of Sgt. Scott Smith of Punxsutawney. He was killed in 2006, while he was trying to defuse an IED (improvised explosive device). He was in his 5th tour of duty in Iraq. His parents were in Harrisburg Thursday to see the passage of the bill.
